Chandler to Lead YW Boston Programs

YWCA Boston announced today the appointment of Beth Chandler as Vice President for Programs.  Serving on the senior management team, Chandler will oversee the successful implementation of the organization’s full complement of community-based programs.

“Despite Boston’s reputation as the Athens of America, many of its residents continue to experience gaps in education, health and neighborhood safety, ” says YW Boston President &C EO Sylvia Ferrell-Jones, “Beth’s leadership will help us strengthen and extend the reach of our programs, all designed to tackle systemic disparities within our city.  We are delighted to have someone of her caliber join our senior team.”

Chandler was most recently vice president at the Achievement Network, a national non-profit dedicated to helping urban public and charter schools close the achievement gap.  She also served as deputy director of the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation, manager of national business development for Neighborworks America, a corporate banking associate with Bank of America, and research and evaluation analyst with the Urban Institute.

 Beth is a graduate of Harvard-Radcliffe College and holds an MBA from Columbia Business School. She and her family reside in Roslindale, MA.

America’s first YWCA, YW Boston is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.  In the next three years, YWCA Boston will incrementally and measurably reduce systemic racial and gender disparities and improve social cohesion in Boston neighborhoods where health, educational and safety inequities are most significant.  In recent years, the organization acquired the Boston Center for Community and Justice’s well-regarded LeadBoston and Youth Leadership Initiative programs and youth and adult dialogues programs from City Wide Dialogues on Boston’s Ethnic and Racial Diversity. Those programs join an evolving menu of evidence-based women’s and girl’s health literacy programs.
